TEAMS

A positive left-handed middle-order batsman, Kithuruwan Vithanage made his Test debut against Bangladesh, after hitting a better than run-a-ball 168 not out against the same team in a tour match one week earlier. Vithanage did little more than manning the ropes on a flat deck in Galle for much of his first Test, but when he finally made the trip to the crease on the fifth day, a lively 59 from 70 balls that featured seven fours and a six, marked him out as a young talent worth investing in.

An alumnus of Royal College in Colombo, Vithanage played age-level cricket for Sri Lanka and was the vice-captain of the Under-19 side for the 2010 World Cup. In 2009, he had been the third-highest run-scorer in an Under-19 tour to Australia. He currently plays for Tamil Union.
